An investigator from the Starke County Sheriff’s Office found an inactive meth lab at a home during a follow-up stolen property investigation Monday. The owner of the home on Island View Drive in Knox agreed to a search. The detective reportedly found an inactive one-pot meth lab and precursors in the garage of the residence. Officers from the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team responded and cleaned up the scene. No charges have been filed at this time, and the investigation is ongoing.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
